The National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Pusiga constituency has raised serious allegations against the CEO of the National Food Buffer Stock Company, Hanan Abdul Wahab, accusing him of assisting Burkinabe nationals in illegally obtaining Ghanaian identification documents, including voter cards.

According to the NDC, the CEO has been actively facilitating the registration of Burkinabe nationals, which they argue undermines the integrity of Ghana’s electoral system.

However, the NPP has labeled the NDC’s claims as fabrications intended to discredit the NPP and tarnish the reputation of the Buffer Stock CEO, emphasizing that the NPP stands by the legal and transparent processes governing voter registration and identification issuance.

The allegations were detailed in a press conference held at the NDC party office in Pusiga, where Alale Baba Atimbilla, the Constituency Communication Officer, presented photographic evidence purportedly showing foreigners lined up for registration at the Pusiga Electoral Commission (EC) office, facilitated by New Patriotic Party (NPP) operatives.

“Shockingly, 17 of them had their registration forms completed without providing their dates of birth and ages on the 15th of May 2024. The Registration Officer, Mr. Muhazu, facilitated this wrongdoing by creating fake Ghana Card IDs for them to proceed with registration. Mr. Hanan is responsible for the mass influx of foreigners for registration,” Atimbilla stated.

The NDC’s evidence includes photos of individuals they claim are foreigners, allegedly transported by NPP members to register in the ongoing Voter Registration Exercise (VRE).

Mr. Atimbilla further expressed grave concern over these activities, noting, “We are gravely concerned about how the individuals lined up in the above pictures for registration at the Pusiga EC office are all foreigners who have been transported there by the NPP to register in the ongoing Voter Registration Exercise (VRE).”

He explained that efforts by security personnel at the Wedana registration center on May 8th to repatriate the foreigners back to Burkina Faso were undermined, as the NPP reportedly used underhanded tactics, sneaking them back into the constituency through alternative routes for registration at Kulungungu on May 9th.

The communications officer further accused the NPP of using these desperate measures solely for their quest for power.

“This reckless behavior not only compromises the integrity of the electoral process but also poses a grave security risk. The influx of non-citizens from this terrorist hub could potentially endanger the country’s safety and stability,” Atimbilla warned.

However, the allegations have been met with strong rebuttals from the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Pusiga constituency.

Speaking on A1 Radio, Mr. Atisib Emmanuel, the Constituency Chairman for the NPP, has dismissed the accusations as baseless and unfortunate, emphasizing that the NPP stands by the legal and transparent processes governing voter registration and identification issuance.
